Desert Island Top Ten Comics (series/issues): So difficult! Watchmen and Birds of Prey, and probably Morrison's Doom Patrol. 52. Cable and Deadpool. That's not ten but my brain has turned to shit.
All time favourite panel/page/scene (scans encouraged): Lots of comic scans end up as my wallpaper, but especially Francis Manapul's picture of Conner, Ma Kent and Krypto next to the cornfield. I just gawp at the pretty. Oh and Kon and Cassie making out (by Todd Nauck, in some comic that I don't remember by someone I've never heard of, never ever).
How do you feel about Rob Liefeld? The childish grin on his face makes me think of 1980s australian daytime soaps. And not in a good way.
What's your stance on bees? Bees are my gods ... or some far better pun that I'm too tired to think up. (Earwigs make chutney? Spiders make gravy?)
Other fandoms: Doctor Who, Star Wars, Buffy
Fannish activities: Just tend to watch 'em ... and maybe get a little lost on the Wikis ... and fall in love with Rose and Faith. That's not weird, right? Right?

What's one awesome thing you did this year? Managed to get tickets for the penultimate night of the RSC's Hamlet, with a recently returned David Tennant. But the year's not quite finished yet: November is not Nanowrimo for me, but the month I send my manuscript to some prospective agents.
